iSCSI Targets for Windows

When you use the OpenSolaris iSCSI Target for a Windows Inititator, the performance may be not in the expected range: Constantin summarizes the steps to get the full performance in his blog entry “X4500 + Solaris ZFS + iSCSI = Perfect Video Editing Storage”

And low and behold, the speed test now yielded 90-100 MB/s (Close to a GBE's raw performance)! Yipee that was it! One little registry entry on the client side gave us a 10x improvement in iSCSI performance!
